Veg intimidation: make kale taste delicious

Last week we talked about artichokes. Today, let’s talk one of the world’s favorite (kinda stinky) greens: KALE! Kale is a nutrient-packed powerhouse and yields some fantastic dietary benefits including iron, Vitamin K, calcium, and an antioxidant boost. It’s funny to think that something I wasn’t crazy about at first attempt is now one of…

Lean lovely leg burner

Monday: Not too shabby when you have Prosecco in the sink, (someone has to drink it, right?) and brownies in the oven! As far as the Prosecco goes, we had the genius idea to chill it in the freezer so we could enjoy it last night. Of course, we forgot about it and remembered our…

Cashew Brownie Batter Bites

If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you may remember that I went to raw culinary school. I ate raw while I was there, and learned so much about nutrition, plating and knife skills. I also learned what it’s like to lack knife skills. I sliced my hand hacking a coconut, and there…

Summer Workout Playlist

I wrote this post earlier but somehow missed the critical “press publish” step. Derp. 😉 Since I’m off work on Mondays, it always feels like a nice relaxing day, but this week is even more fun because the Pilot took some leave. He has 90-something days, and while he obviously can’t use them all -how…

Becoming a morning person

Why hello there, cup o’green: Remember when I mentioned those blended salads I used to have alllll the time? Well, I had to make one after that! I used to do this in the Valdosta days, and figured that it would be a fun way to get in some extra veggies. In the blender, I…

Homemade nut cheese

Whenever I see a food that looks AMAZING, I can’t.get.it.outta.my.mind until I get my fix. It happened recently when a green smoothie -I’ve been thinking about the blended salads I used to make so often!- and again when I read Gena’s post about nut cheese. It’s been quite a while since I’ve had nut-based cheese…

7/5: Friday faves

-Butter nail polish It goes on like, well…. butter. And, unlike my beloved Essie polish, you don’t need 14 coats for the color to look vibrant. 2 coats and BOOM. I also love that the BX on base carries Butter nail polish 🙂 -Target sandals Meg told me about these sandals when I was looking…

Dehydration 101

I got this request for a post last night, and since I didn’t have anything else to share this morning -I spent my Tuesday night with a glass of red and my Kindle since Liv was sleeping and the Pilot was flying- I figured it would be perfect for today. The title could possibly suggest…

Homemade Kombucha

Even though I made kombucha at 105degrees, it’s always freaked me out to make it at home. I pictured our house being overrun by scoby mushrooms, engulfed in a vinegar aroma. I also thought the Pilot thought it would be the final ticket to the “my wife is a little ‘out there’” town. But, guess…

flash to Friday

It was a pretty great week. The house feels like it’s finally put back together- I can’t wait to show you pics of Liv’s new room- work was bueno (taught Barre, Tabata and Zumba in one day!), lots of time spent with lovebug, dates with friends, some Downton Abbey- can’t complain. It was a nice…

Raw jalapeño crackers

When things get a little, um… shriveled… over here, there’s really only one thing to do with them. Put them into the dehydrator! Duh. It’s where things go to die…or be born again? I’ve gotten a little overzealous with my jalapeño consumption. They’ve been thrown into eggs, salads, eaten with hummus, plain, it’s a little…
